East Temple. On September 2, Stu Turner, Mike Ermarth, Brad Merry, Ron Shrigley and I did a new route on the northwest face of East Temple. We climbed the talus and slabs to the base of the face, and then ascended a wide and sometimes icy couloir diagonaling the face to the right (west). About halfway up the face we left the couloir and worked straight up a broken dihedral on enjoyable, sound rock to the summit plateau. (NCCS III, F3).
